Former India seamer Manoj Prabhakar has applied for the women’s national team coach’s job. The BCCI has advertised for the chief coach’s post and Prabhakar has applied for it.

“Yes, I have applied for the chief coach’s post. It would be an honour to serve the country’s national cricket team in any capacity,” Prabhakar confirmed his candidature on on Sunday.

While Prabhakar’s knowledge about the game is unquestionable, what remains to be seen is if the coach’s selection panel will shortlist him for the interview.

“There is so much talent in women’s game and I think I have the experience to help the likes of Mithali Raj, Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana," Prabhakar said.
